Residential solar energy is a speciality of HEG Energy. We concentrate on delivering appropriately-sized solar PV solutions using quality components at cost effective prices to ensure an efficient outcome for households.
Due to our professional staff & fine margins, we install a larger number of solar PV jobs. Due to our large number of solar PV jobs, we are able to bulk buy solar stock, which allows us to offer great solar PV installation rates.
We can do any size of system (assuming you have the room on your roof or land), from 1.5kw upwards. The most common solar energy system sizes are:
- 3kw (low consumption households, 1 or 2 people in the home)
- 5kw (families or higher energy consumption households)
- 10kw (those households looking to future proof with battery-ready solar solutions; this is the largest practical solar system size without running into complications with your energy retailer).
We have a policy of only recommending solar energy solutions ONLY IF IT IS APPROPRIATE for your home. We will never be pushy. Enthusiastic – yes – but only if a solar PV solution is beneficial to your home, budget and lifestyle.
Benefits of Solar Power
Financial. Lifestyle. Environmental.
Many people will know solar energy is a sustainable, zero-emission electricity source for life, but there are many other benefits to consider when making the switch. To help make it easier we have grouped them into financial, lifestyle, and environmental benefits.
Financial Benefits of Solar Power
By investing in renewable energy and installing solar panels on your home, you can:
- Reduce or even eliminate your future power bills
Based on the size of your solar system, your energy usage, and where you live, installing a Bradford solar panel system can help you significantly reduce your ongoing electricity bills. Get started and calculate your solar savings.
A well-designed and properly installed home solar power system can deliver a considerable return on investment, often within 4 years, dependent on system size and usage.
- Minimise the impact of increasing energy costs
Generating your own clean solar energy limits your exposure to inevitable price increases.
- Increase your home’s intrinsic value
A solar power system that generates free, clean energy can positively affect the re-sale value of your home.
- Potential Government Rebates
Households can take advantage of government incentives to reduce their system cost as long that their system is installed by Clean Energy Council-accredited company like Bradford Solar.
- Prepare for the introduction of Mandatory Disclosure
Mandatory Disclosure is a new building code that measures a building’s energy efficiency and allocates a star rating. This rating impacts a building’s resale value and/ or future rental returns. The more stars a building has, the more energy efficient it is considered. Research in the ACT has shown that increasing a building’s star rating by just one star increases its resale value by 3%.
- Long Term Durability
Once installed and working, solar panels require little maintenance, other than the annual cleaning down of panels and health check, working efficiently for years and decades to come. Take a look at our easy to read guide on maintaining your panels.
How Does Solar Power Enhance Your Lifestyle?
Opting for solar power system means that you can:
- Improve your living environment

Use all of your favourite conveniences – laptops, plasmas, entertainment systems etc. – without worrying how much power you’re using or your impact on the environment.
- Enjoy smaller energy bills
Put your hard-earned dollars towards things you and your family enjoy – rather than on energy bills.
How Does Solar Power Help the Environment?
Solar power systems can help save the environmental in the following ways:
- Reduce your carbon footprint
Being a zero-emission electricity source, solar power is able to avoid one tonne of C02 for every 1MWh of solar power.
- Contribute to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET)
Help ensure that Australia achieves its target of 20 per cent of electricity coming from renewable sources by 2020.
- Limit the effects of global warming
Solar Energy is renewable, sustainable and efficient, helping secure a better future for your children, and for future generations.
